DIRECTIONS

  Plug in the address (5100 El Camino Real, Los Altos) into your
  favorite Internet mapping site, or...

  From CA-85, take El Camino Real north.  Just past Rengstorff, the
  restaurant will be on your left; make a U-turn at the next light.
  Park on the street or in the lot behind the restaurant.

  From US-101, take the Rengstorff exit (south/west) and follow
  Rengstorff until it ends at El Camino.  Turn right on El Camino and
  U-turn as above.  Alternate: take San Antonio Rd instead and turn
  left on El Camino.

  From I-280, take the El Monte Rd. / Moody Rd. exit and head east on
  El Monte.  Turn left onto Foothill Expressway, then right onto San
  Antonio Blvd.  Take San Antonio to El Camino Real and turn right.
  The restaurant will be on your right after a couple of blocks (if
  you reach Rengstorff you have gone too far).

  On public transit, take VTA Light Rail or Caltrain to the Mountain
  View Transit Center, then take Line 34 or 35 to Showers & Latham (in
  front of Wal*Mart).  Walk down Showers to El Camino, then a block or
  two down El Camino to the restaurant.  Or take VTA Line 22 from
  either direction along El Camino and get off near Rengstorff.  Or go
  to http://www.511.org and use their Trip Planner to plan your route.

  You can also email me if you will need a ride from the train station
  and I might be able to arrange something.


We look forward to seeing you there!
